  5. Heterdyne Interferometer for Triggering Gas Puff PRSs

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Large X-ray generators using gas fill loads are a key element in the DTRA simulator program. Consistent relative timing between the injection of the gas shell and the generator current pulse is crucial to producing consistent, high-yield x-ray pulses.To that end HY-Tech proposes replacing existing high voltage trigger pin technology, with a sensitive, all fiber-optic heterodyne interferometer ba ...

  9. Numerical Model of Subsurface Transport of Noble Gases in Fractured Geologic Media for Detection and Identification of Subsurface Nuclear Explosion Te

    SBC: MODERN TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: DTRA111002

    Surface detection of specific radioisotopes of the noble gases xenon and argon are essential for detection and discrimination of underground nuclear explosions. We propose a unique combination of numerical modeling and stable isotope release experiments to enhance the predictability of subsurface transport of the noble gases of interest. Our proposed research will identify and quantify the physi ...
